You may think that a trip to the dentist is only necessary when something is visibly wrong with your teeth and gums. But regular appointments with our general dentistry expert can help ensure that your smile stays healthy and strong even when problems are not apparent. A general dentist can perform many common dental procedures, provide educational services, and make referrals to specialists as needed. The American Dental Association recommends scheduling a dental examination once every six months so that your teeth and gums can be thoroughly inspected.
Our expert in general dentistry utilizes optical magnification and dental X-rays in order to examine your mouth. Sometimes problems are readily visible while other problems are developing beneath the service. Regular exams allow our dentist to detect any problems while they are still in their early stages; therefore, a less invasive and less expensive treatment can be recommended. In addition to a visual inspection, our general dentistry expert will give your mouth a comprehensive cleaning using manual or ultrasonic technology as well as polishing instruments. This keeps your teeth healthy and looking good.
Although you are probably expecting X-rays and cleaning during your examination, our expert in general dentistry offers so much more. No matter what you are looking to fix in your mouth, our dentist has a solution, or at the very least, we can suggest a specialist to handle your issues. Some of these practices include:
- Orthodontic treatments to correct misalignments and straighten teeth
- Cosmetic dentistry, which can involve teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of teeth
- Preventive dentistry techniques such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants to prevent problems from occurring in the first place
- Root canal treatments to reduce tooth pain caused by infected tooth pulp
- Tooth replacement options such as dental crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures
- Restorative care such as dental fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays, and dental bonding to repair damaged teeth
In addition to regularly visiting their dentist, patients should also care for their teeth on their own time by brushing, flossing, and maintaining a healthy diet. If you have not had a dental exam in a while, schedule a consultation today.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
